Independent label: Vernon Yard Records was a sub- label of Virgin Records. It issued singles in an YARD-0 numerical series. Vernon Yard Recordings was an independent label owned by Virgin Records. Vernon Yard is a small mews off the Portobello Road in Notting Hill. Although Virgin owned a controlling interest in the label, they let Vernon Yard operate as a traditional indie lanel. and therefore very few Vernon Yard releases were distributed by Virgin. In fact, Vernon Yard used many different distributors throughout its run, The label had a strong relationship with Virgin's British indie, Hut Records, importing Hut bands into the USA, and sending Vernon Yard-signed acts over to the UK for release on Hut.The label was known for its emphasis on modern psychedelic rock and its many subgenres, including shoegaze (The Verve), slowcore (Acetone and Low), and indie Britpop (The Auteurs). Although the Vernon Yard label would still pop up occasionally up to the early 21st century, Virgin took greater control over the label in 1997, leading many key acts to leave the label. Virgin wanted to heavily promote The Verve's 1997 Urban Hymns and, as such, released the album on Virgin and not Vernon Yard. Distributed By Vital and Cargo Records.
